Eco Builders of High Quality
Design & Construction
Cabinco is an established company which, for many years, has been creating sustainable timber buildings based around a shell of machine profiled interlocking logs. Learn more about us
At Cabinco we have experience of constructing a large number of individual sustainable buildings for organisations wishing to erect ‘green’ environmentally sound premises.
We combine our traditional timber log buildings with innovative design ideas and modern technology to create sustainable buildings which blend into their environment and will be in place to inspire the next generation.
Wood is a naturally renewable resource which provides a permanent carbon lock when used in construction. These properties provide an excellent basis for today’s modern eco-buildings. We have now teamed up with specialist contractors to be able to offer the Eco-School as a complete turnkey solution with an environmental focus.
Cost, Energy, Labour & Planet Saving Eco Building
Each building is individually designed, and all components are machined and cut off-site. The MPL system facilitates rapid erection, optimises accuracy, and minimises the use of heavy plant. A “spin-off” benefit of our system is the ability to work in relatively confined areas without having to lift heavy panels etc over existing buildings.
Our timber buildings can sit on a variety of foundations, including screw-piles: which minimise time on site, and further reduce the need for expensive heavy plant. Typically, screw pile foundations for an average nursery unit would require no more than a 2.5 tonne mini excavator to drive them. This has a significant impact on CO₂emissions generated on-site.
Our wooden buildings are designed to meet or exceed all current UK Building Control legislation. We also have an “in house” BREEAM capability, enabling Cabinco to provide expert guidance on compliance. Cabinco timber buildings are all based around a structural MPL shell which is then insulated externally, and clad in Siberian Larch although we can incorporate a wide range of alternatives to suit client requirements.
